Information Technology

New and efficient electronic technologies are evolving from science fiction to reality through nanoscience. CNSI scientists and engineers utilize semiconductor materials such as metal oxides, perovskite, and graphene to break the mold in the creation of small, fast, and flexible electronics. These materials will enable progressive information technologies such as quantum computers. Carbon-based and carbon-metal hybrid semiconductors being developed in CNSI core technology centers show promise to vastly improve the performance of data storage circuits, batteries, and electronics in personal devices.

Ever-increasing global demand for faster and more durable information exchange has created a race to develop and commercialize the next generation of information technology platforms. CNSI maintains an international leadership role in the development of exciting new technologies to meet future demand.

The California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has changed or added five cameras connected to its suite of six transmission electron microscopes. Taken together, the upgrades will dramatically reduce noise in imaging while increasing efficiency and offering options to meet the distinct needs of different types of investigations. These instruments are available to users from UCLA and beyond at the EICN.
